Posted this on sp2 forum, no reply. Anyone here have any ideas/suggestions please! Am I going to have do fresh install of win xp?

during sp2 installation get message "an error occured while copying file xpmsgr.chm, cannot copy file to destination directory". Asks for retry or cancel, retry = same message, so cancel and continue setup without copying this file.
Gets to "setup cannot copy the file xpmsgr.chm, ensure that the location below is correct or change it and insert 'Windows xp sp2 source files' in the drive you specify'." Below this have several choices to copy files from (e.g. C:\d325etcetc). No response from any of them.

Any ideas/solutions please? have repeatedly gone through above process. not an expert on any of this and driving me round bend. running xp pro. thanks.
